Update 2011.07.21

Whew, lots of stuff going on.

As you all have guessed, we invited more Guinea Pigs into ThereIM, and, for the most part, almost all of them courageously took up the challenge to help us test (one kicked, screamed, and cried like a little boy, but we got them in. Unfortunately, their avatar wasn’t quite…how do I put this? “whole”, when it arrived. Anyway, moving on). As you can imagine we exposed lots of little niggly bugs, almost all of them related to:

  • Sending out emails with equal signs in them. Yes, you heard it right.
  • Being a NAT’d system where “what we see” is different from “what you see” (a situation which most men in the audience here are well aware) (“Me: Conan”, she sees “You: In your dreams!”)

The good news is that SamSyn and Bruce are working away at it.

Meanwhile, SamSyn continues to work on getting the World-at-Large to work. It’s got a ways to go, and you’ll all be on ThereIM long before you’re in world, but we’re making progress.

Now for the obligatory screen shots:

    Samsyn is so powerful, it makes him glow haha.

    The ThereIM progress pics are simply beautiful (sniff, tear)…and encouraging. Please keep posting!

  3. #3 by Aylana on 2011.07.25 - 3:54 am

    How do you get an invite? I tried to log in with my name but it says its not open and it says something about my email not being registered… but it was the one i used with there.com.

    • #4 by Tinirty on 2011.07.27 - 5:10 pm

      Aylana, Admin will send you an invite when it is your turn – be patient.

    I’m upgrading my WP profile and image. Testing to see if it works. More images (memories of There later!)

  9. #10 by DJHussey on 2011.07.24 - 11:58 am

    I’ve been lurking this blog for quite awhile now, it looks like the progress being made is quite great in quality and I’m excited to see the game open to the public once again. Can’t wait to hang out with all the people I did once again!

  12. #16 by mimi06 on 2011.07.24 - 11:28 am

    So.. After all the hard work Samsyn did.. to get me fixed for ThereIM.. come to find out it was ME that goofed it up.. ( as usual). That being said. I opened ThereIm, logged on.. and went into a state of shock! The only words I could mumble( type) were OMG. Since last night, I have relogged numerous times, thinking I was dreaming. I changed my clothes, tried all my super bunnies on :O, all og my island guide clothes ๐Ÿ™‚ fixed my hair, did the jig, chatted with the other GP,s , and stared alot. I had only used ThereIm a few times when it was available, last year, didn’t realize it was such a big part of who we are. Everything seemed to look wonderful, to me. Right down to my traditional hair bunn rofl.. I cannot wait till you all are in, and I only hope you feel this sense of excitement I do. I am honored I was asked to GP, even tho alot of you know alot more abaout such bugs then me. I will come here often and share what I can. Just know this, MW and the crew are working MORE then you know, hours and hours to get you home, I have experienced this first hand with my fumbles.. They truely are amazing. Bye for now “just another GP post” rofl ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. #17 by IMAKOS on 2011.07.24 - 11:22 am

    GP IMAKOS here,
    OK spent my day trying to work out MY Password issue. I know I have the right password now, I know I have the right e-mail as well. So I just have to wait until we get it sorted out. Did I mention yet today just how Excited I am that There.com is re-opening? ”’Yay ”’backflip ”chickendance

  14. #18 by kazenoai on 2011.07.24 - 11:21 am

    thanks so much for the blog

  15. #19 by CrypticAsian on 2011.07.24 - 10:02 am

    Hey all, I posted my GP findings (with lots of screenshots) at my blog, http://zenresorts.wordpress.com. It’s too much info/pics for me to spam MW’s blog with, especially since I’ve already turned the info in via email. ๐Ÿ™‚ MW gets enough crazy posts as it is from us There addicts (especially from the under-18 crowd, it seems).

  16. #20 by Christy Clendenen on 2011.07.24 - 9:13 am

    Having a good Day here at end of the Line, lawn chair out, frozen capp, dreaming of There~

  17. #21 by HighFlier on 2011.07.24 - 7:58 am

    All I can say, we sure have done a heck of a lot of celebrating on just this one single page of his blug. Honestly I don’t think I’v ever seen a blug page move at this speed. Even being moderated somewhat for that matter. We are some online community us Therians. We do know how to turn a little party into a world wide event.

    I was not able to do any testing yesterday or today yet because I have company in real life who knows nothing of my virtual life. I can’t wait till they decide to go home.
    I would rather entertain you folks than them. Does that mean I’m addicted when I want to be with all of you over my real life friends? Oh who cares. I hope they leave.

    I’M ADDICTED TO THERE AND I DON’T CARE!!!! the person who had that group must bring it back.

  18. #22 by MeadowAngel on 2011.07.24 - 7:45 am

    Awesome! Thanks for the update. Can’t wait to go home.

    PS: Dakotaman, LOL at the Golden Ticket reference. That’s exactly what it feels like. I keep searching my inbox and spam folders hoping for a Golden Ticket (ThereIM invite).

  19. #23 by Ryan Satterfield on 2011.07.24 - 7:42 am

    I hope Michael check this often, there is something I need to discuss him and if he looks hard enough he will know what I’m talking about. Email me ๐Ÿ˜‰ … (Hint: DJFire2)

      telling MW to send ya email sends ya back to the line enjoy back there

  20. #25 by mmeodiles on 2011.07.24 - 7:20 am

    MW….could you please clarify this, as many of us are confused including me…

    Did you say: The fee for world would be, ‘no less than 10 dollars a month’…& ‘no more than 15 dollars a month?’
    or…. is your latest update, (10 dollars a month for World)… and that would be your final answer?

    confused, and not surprised by my confusion!

  21. #26 by Michelle on 2011.07.24 - 5:44 am

    Same here… except with my Bff xXxShaylaGurlzxXx i miss her ^.^ i miss my membership ._.

        Yup, that be me, lol I hope to bring back Sudoku if and when the world comes back. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. #30 by Robert on 2011.07.24 - 3:24 am

    Mr.Wilson Can I ask you why There will be 18+ ?

    • #31 by Defector on 2011.07.24 - 9:02 am

      It costs a lot of money to “childproof” the game. He commented on it in a previous post. He did however say “In the future this might change, but that decision is final for now. Again, I apologize.” So Im assuming that when there gets back on its feet and (maybe) starts raking in profits they may allow 13+ again. Until then They cant because of the costs. If I remember correctly he said it was due to moderation purposes and the expenses it takes to moderate a PG-13 world.

  24. #32 by andy3003 on 2011.07.24 - 12:11 am

    its gonna be the best day ever when world is fully open for sure……tyssm to MW Bruce Samsyn and the team for all your hard work !!

    Sorry Micheal

    I was told by a friend that there.com was open so tried to log on. it looks different so I thought maybe they were right. I couldn’t get it to work and realized I was right that it is not running yet. Wanted you to know It was actually me trying to log in not one of the ones trying to miss you up. Sorry, agian for being misinformed, Good luck!

  27. #36 by Defector on 2011.07.23 - 7:51 pm

    Thanks for all of the updates to the pigs. We appreciate you sharing your experiences with us. Especially those of us who refresh Michaels blog every 10 minutes to see if there is another update. Sounds as if you guys are having a real nice time testing the world and it’s nice to know there are just a few problems even if they are big ones. Good luck and keep us updated! We’re real anxious to get back into our Home.. and to Michael, Bruce, and Samsyn.. Thank you for all your hard work and Im sure I speak for everyone when I say we appreciate everything you guys are doing most importantly giving us our 2nd home back. Good luck GP’s!

      Shoot, I only check every couple of hours….Thanks for the updates you GPs! It’s very interesting to see what’s going on from your point of view as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    • #40 by Mark B. (Cowbellwalken) on 2011.07.24 - 4:20 am

      I’m guilty of checking every 10 minutes as well… Especially now that GPs are more actively sharing their experiences.

    • #41 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.24 - 4:24 am

      GP xSnoopy here,
      It’s a little frustrating not being in world yet.
      That frustration is replaced by knowing that, when my turn comes I will be only one of only a very few who will get to view the world and watch the changes on a daily basis and help There fix any problems I see.
      The world is so large that I will be posting screen shots of the places I visit.
      For you guys, ALL OF YOU, who miss Zephyr as much as I do. When the teleport works, it will be the FIRST place I tele to. I will take lots of screenshots and post them and TRY to give you a daily update.
      If, for some reason one of the GP’s or any of the There crew shows up (that includes you Michael ๐Ÿ™‚ ), without a Forcefield, I will promptly shoot them and post those pics also.
      If the Zone function works, I will also be letting you know if the Paz’s are out and are where I expected them to be, especially yours Billy!
      I don’t want to lose this opportunity to be a GP so if any Paz’s are missing, I wont touch that area, just let you know its empty.
      Hang on guys, were almost There,

    The screenshots remind me of the days of the ‘Red Spiders’. Ahh….the good ole days when we used to make sport out of hunting anomalies. Speaking of famous anomalies: I wonder if the singular test avie we used to call: ‘Mr Blinky’ still exists. We used to find him in the oddest places.

    Looks like the GP’s are having a fun time xD
    Quick question for any GP’s that might be reading this;
    Any Bugs in ThereIM that have not yet been picked up on by MW or anyone else?

    • #59 by CrypticAsian on 2011.07.23 - 4:28 pm

      Like what kind of bugs? I haven’t heard yet from the last set of feedback I had turned in, but I had some multiple-stacking issue when it came to the ChangeMe portion of ThereIM. For instance, it would say I had rose glasses AND nerdy glasses on at the same time, when my avie didn’t physically show it. When I tried to take off one of the items it swore I was wearing, it wouldn’t do it — it still kept saying I was wearing it. Or else I’d take one off and then something completely different would come off instead. It’s like playing Stripper-Russian roulette or something. LOL You never know if someone’s gonna throw some tbux your way for what does come off, usually something you weren’t planning on. LOL

    • #60 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.23 - 4:48 pm

      ThereIM seems to be working fine when you take the proper steps to get it working.
      There are some lost connections at times, where you have to establish a chat again.
      Considering what Makena is trying to do, things are GREAT!!

  36. #61 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.23 - 3:26 pm

    Hello out there from Guinea Pig land,

    To say the last 36 hours has not been frustrating, would be untrue!

    Since Thursday, when I discovered my invite, it has been one misstep after another on MY part. The crew at There has been spectacular! Considering what they are trying to do and then have to hold my hand while this mess was straightened out.

    First one was my forgotten password for xSnoopy. I could see my chances to be one of the first, fading fast. Went to bed Friday morning at 3:00 AM after about 6 emails between myself and There.

    If you didn’t use the “Secret Phrase” method of retrieving your password in the old There, DO IT the first chance you can! It saved my butt!

    Once the password problem was solved, I skimmed one of the several emails I got from There. This one told me where I could download the new ThereIM. OOPS,

    I have always been a “hands on guy” and love to put things together without reading the instructions. It has been my downfall for a long time LOL

    I had There installed on this computer so I tried to log into world. I got as far as There Central. where, after several attempts I finally gave up on the world and explored There Central.

    As MrScrooge said, the first smile came when I went to my Profile and it showed up. Believe me, an insignificant thing like that means a lot after 16 months of trying to remember There.

    Now im thinking a little more positive. Soooo, I installed ThereIM and immediately ran into more problems. OF MY OWN DOING! There is this little thing you need to do before it will connect. Hmmm, I skimmed that one to. Ok, got that fixed.

    I didn’t use ThereIM before There closed so I had NO buddies list.

    Now I need someone to talk to.

    Soooo, back here and Thumdars blog to find out who were the other GP’s I could share my frustration with LOL

    FINALLY, last night, I connected with one of the GP’s and she lit up my world!! No, it was NOT Tig LOL

    Today, after adding a few more buddies, I had a 4 way chat with Orielle, Francis_7 and Shivaki.

    Now I know there is hope for all of us! It was worth EVERY second of the frustration to see another avatar, to see them laugh (rofl), to be able to share with them, our journeys.

    I won’t post any screen shots this time, as you have seen everything I have seen so far.

    Hang in there gang, were almost There!


    • #62 by CrypticAsian on 2011.07.23 - 4:24 pm

      Hi there, fellow guinea-pigger! LOL I think the zero buddies isn’t just you; I know I had a couple on mine before There closed, and now it said zero (till I added a GP or 2 anyway). I believe MW said in a previous post (or in one of the emails we got) that we would have zero buddies to start with. So hey, that’s another one you can cross off your task list! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • #63 by Charles Davis on 2011.07.23 - 6:50 pm

      Thank you for the update. Just one question, please. Is there voice chat in ThereIM. I never used it be for there.com closed.

      • #64 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.24 - 4:04 am

Orielle’s been a huge support, even if I don’t get into THEREIM, I am happy to be a apart of the GP team.. lol. Thanks MW and crew, for having the patience of saints with me.. ๐Ÿ™‚ AND NO this doesnt mean THEREIM is open to the public yet..(js) so ya dont get flooded again because of my post ๐Ÿ™‚

    • #74 by CrypticAsian on 2011.07.23 - 4:20 pm

      Hey fellow GP! I had probs with accessing ThereIM too. I just did a clean uninstall, deleted any leftover files, shortcuts, folders, etc., then restarted PC & did a clean install. I can log into it now, but I haven’t had any luck getting a chat going with anyone. Maybe by Monday our issues will be fixed. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • #75 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.23 - 4:44 pm

      Are you on Yahoo Messenger?
      If you are, add me and I will walk you through getting on ThereIM.
      You can add me in Yahoo .. I’m:
      Add me as a buddy.
      Either way, let me know where we can chat and I will try to be there.

      that is sooo awesome Mimi! I was worried when you had issues with remembering your password. when it opens I’ll be so happy to see ya in There!!!

  43. #78 by cierdwyn on 2011.07.23 - 1:14 pm

    I’m REALLY looking forward to getting back into There!! Cannot wait to start building and decorating my lots and to see my little Cierdwyn’s Hideaway Island. I keep peeking in and am rooting for everyone working away to get us back “home”. First thing I’m gonna do is drop my hoverboard and just rip around everywhere!! LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also …

    I don’t know if this will help everyone trying to get their password but .. I use Firefox and I got my password and username for my There login from the Saved Passwords.

    Tools > Options > Security > Saved Passwords …. in the search box at the top I typed in “there.com” .. and up they popped. Showed my username .. I clicked the link to Show Passwords .. and said yes at the prompt .. it showed me my password for my There account.

    I thought I’d pass this along .. it *may* help some who are needing their data. I have it on my old compy and on this one as I transfered the entire FF data to my new one so nothing was lost.

WILSON, seeing this, thought, and thought, so his final answer was SURE!! No it wasn’t but he threw me to the end of the line, now Its cold, not 110 like Toronto, and i’m surrounded by 4 eyed monsters tryng to steal my inventory so i paintballed them. But FOR EVERYBODY, LET THAT BE YOUR LESSON, AT MY EXPENSE, DO NOT ASK FOR MORE, MAKENA IS ALREADY WORKIN’ HARD ENOUGH. Or join me at the back of the line, I’m kinda lonely… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • #82 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.23 - 6:05 pm

      SUCK IT UP!!
      MW sent me to the end of the line to make another line.
      Then he changed the rules and sent me to the BACK of the mob.
      Then he told me I was OUT of the mob.
      Then I got my invite!
      So there is hope after all.

    hey so i don’t mean to ask a stupid question or anything because you have probably already answered it, but on the site it says you can create an avatar or log in.. are we allowed too or no ?

    • #114 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.23 - 5:52 pm

      Not yet, the only way you can make an avie is by invite only.
      Right now Guinea Pigs (beta testers) are the only ones getting invites.

  58. #115 by MrScrooge on 2011.07.23 - 6:45 am

    GP Scrooge here,

    I just wanted to comment on some of the little things I enjoy with the ThereIM. I can’t say how much I missed the sounds when you get an IM or the sound when you trial something and it’s about to expire. Just hearing those things brought a smile to my face. I know the rest of you are going to love it all when you get to come in.

    Another one of the little things was my profile. I used to really enjoy writing things in my profile and this time was no different. I also got a kick out of seeing all my old skill levels. I can’t wait to get back to work on those!

    But my most favorite thing is I can just type away and not have to click in some little annoying box. The downside is that I have to really watch my spelling now LOL. But it is great how easy it is to just chat away in ThereIM. I can’t wait until the rest of you can join us. The team is working hard fixing the things we find so hopefully very soon you’ll be able to join us, just don’t bother MW or he may run over me again LOL

    • #116 by mmeodiles on 2011.07.23 - 8:01 am

      Speaking with Bubbles is so so much fun! I went to see your profile LOL yeppers saw your writings and your photo! ;P

    This is so exciting! Thanks for the reports all of you lucky “GP’s”. Every one is as a step closer to our Virtual dreams. The pictures fair to leave me leaning into the monitor ;-P
    Thanks to the team behind the scenes, people are actually communicating via THERE again! I hope the dragons don’t eat too many yellow flowers before I can check in on them. The backwash is a firestorm! :-O

    Hey man,
    I’m just curious in regards to everything else you blogged, since I haven’t seen it yet.

    Is it possible to purchase now? Now a pre-purchase or pre-release purchase, saves us the trouble purchasing at the time.
    Also, what payment methods? Will it JUST be paypal or are we able to pay via credit card?

  63. #122 by Craig Hartley on 2011.07.23 - 3:52 am

    Bit of fun, anyone know where SamSyn is there? (And please,no corny answers as “He is There! of course”)

    To me it looks like Aurora (I think that’s what it’s called).

    • #123 by GaryBob on 2011.07.23 - 12:55 pm

      My guess is he’s on the southeast slope of NeNe’s Peak just above Tabu. I recognize the pass into Tiki Valley. I have a PAZ in Wordgrove not far from there and the terrain looks quite familiar. After double-checking a map of Caldera, I’m pretty sure that’s where he is.

    Thank you MW, Samsyn, Bruce and all the other people for making the re-opening of There a reality. I always look for the black box posts from MW to see what he has to say and then go back to see others comments. We have all been without There for along time. I know how others feel missing it. But, it took 7 days to create the earth. We are not like God so it may take longer and that is okay, I can wait. Hang in there fellow Therians.

    I got your Add Buddy request but the Accept link wasent working for me.
    Actually I got 4 requests but none of the Accept links would work.
    Sooooo, I logged onto ThereIM and Added you and the other 3 as buddies .. you should find it as soon as you log in.
    I have a mangled EMail verification link so it looks like I wont be able to join you, on the sand, in a buggy right away. Still waiting for migration of my stuff anyway.
    The folks at There must be working about 28 hours a day trying to get all of us home! Great crew!
    Funny looking thing sticking out of your tail pipe LOL
    Talked to Orielle on Yahoo today .. she assured me that it will take a couple of days for migration (just got logged in early this afternoon)… Guess I just didnt want to believe the EMails from the guys at There… wishful thinking on my part ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Just in case any of you actually read this far, I received my invite to be a GP on Thursday. YEAH!!

    • #144 by HighFlier on 2011.07.23 - 1:15 am

      Ha! Yes well, GP Orielle said you were invited and you wanted us to add you. I did but it became a joke because I got seg violated when I attempted to add your name several times. I was expecting some sort of confirmation. When I came back I joked with them your going to get lots of HighFlier spam. I knew it generated more than one email. It’s one of those things you learn from experience with Theremail. ๐Ÿ™„

      • #145 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.23 - 6:42 am

        Ya, she said someone was trying to add me and they were getting a segvio… Which I immediately assumed was my old buddy segvio who I have known for years .. LOL .. Didn’t know it was you .. I aent a buddy request .. you should have gotten it when you logged onto IM .. I’m going to look now… Oh, the accept link was the EMail ones and not ThereIM type.

    OK, I got an Invite to enter There.com.. Unfortunately the Password I have just isn’t working, that seems to be MY only problem.

    Yes I am sad. BUT it can’t be helped at the moment there is no way at this time for There.com to retrieve PASSWORDS but that was mentioned early on in MW’s blog.

    SO!! I will wait with HOPE ( like I did for There.com to reopen) that a Solution is figured out But, I wish there was a Way I could pay for my subscription NOW so I can feel like I’m am helping in that tiny way.

    • #158 by CrypticAsian on 2011.07.23 - 4:06 pm

      Hi! Add me to the guinea pig list as well; my avie is under the name, “CrypticAsian”. I wasn’t sure who all the GP’s were, so all I’ve been able to add so far is Studly & Orielle, and of course, Samsyn, but he’s more of the guinea pig slave driver… ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t know if I’m having probs connecting or it’s just the timing (or timezones) involved, but I haven’t been able to get a chat going at all. Then again, I seem to be the only one with the clothing-stack probs (ThereIM says I’m “wearing” multiple eyeglasses at once & other things, even though my avie doesn’t physically show it). Hope to see some/all of my fellow GP’s via ThereIM soon! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • #159 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.23 - 5:45 pm

      Did you use the “Secret Phrase” before There closed?
      If you did, you have a way to retrieve your password.
      Let me know on here or Thumdar and I will help you with the problem.
      I forgot mine also and it saved my butt.

    Have you ever known what you are getting for Christmas or your birthday, yet were forced to wait till that special day? That’s what the wait for THERE to reopen is like. But in the end, when we finally all get to log in will be like having that present in our hands finally. Can’t wait!!

    • #164 by jimony on 2011.07.23 - 11:59 am

    Normally I do not even pay attention to my personal email. I had to clean out months and months worth of junk that has filled up my inbox and junk box. As I did I carefully scanned each email to see if it is an email from There or my Therian friends. Now my personal email account is cleaned out in anticipation of either news that There is open or that I have been invited to test it out. In either case, I am excited and happy that it will not be too much longer that we will all returning to our home and to see our friends. Life is good! I am sooooo freaking happy! Michael if you were in front of me I would have to give you a big hug. Thanks Michael all of the hard work going into reopening is much appreciated by many.

    Gotta love the pinkness… Just saying…

  95. #181 by jimony on 2011.07.22 - 12:40 pm

    Has anyone with Comcast.net received an email invite?
    I am wondering if There still can’t send mail to Comcast.net addresses or if I need to be put at the back of the line in order to get in line?

    • #182 by saltysilver on 2011.07.23 - 4:53 am

      MW said that he was taking E-mails here from his blog. So it’s not a “mass” e-mail it would be a “personal” e-mail.

      • #183 by jimony on 2011.07.23 - 11:54 am

        But some have said they found it in their junk mail, so I was wondering if Comcast is still blocking them or not.
        I am ok with not being one of the select few that is asked to test, the world will be open for all of us soon enough, but just thinking I might not get the offer if it is extended is frustrating.

      • #184 by jimony on 2011.07.23 - 2:02 pm

        To my knowledge There never got the email issue with Comcast settled, as I never did receive the email regarding the survey and don’t know of anyone else on Comcast who did. Maybe Comcast put There (pun accidentally intended) address on a spam list that they won’t even allow personal emails through.

      • #185 by Kayleigh Lace on 2011.07.23 - 5:04 pm

        I have Comcast and I never had an issue getting EMails from There – it’s how I knew to find this blog for that survey.

      • #186 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.23 - 5:40 pm

        You telling us that Comcast put There on IGNORE?

      • #187 by jimony on 2011.07.23 - 7:59 pm

        According to Kayleigh and one other person, it was just me. I guess Comcast doesn’t think I should “go there”.
        I guess there must have been an other reason I never did receive that email about the survey. I am sure I am still using the same email I used in There. I guess I just wasn’t important enough, LOL.

      • #188 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.23 - 8:05 pm

        “Importance” has never been a factor in There.

        Prettiness is all that counts. You just weren’t pretty enough.

      • #189 by jimony on 2011.07.23 - 11:48 pm

        But, but, but, I’m pretty ugly, that should count!
        And I’m pretty on the INSIDE!

        Seriously, MW, do you realise what your saying?
        You think xSnoopy is pretty?

      • #190 by SaltySilver on 2011.07.24 - 10:31 am

        Jimony, you got that right about Comcast. Their Filter is very filtery. My husband consiiders the Spam box like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are gonna get.

    Hey Mr. Wilson, by any chance do you know how Manu and what ports will need to be open for There.com? I was asking only because I have my network setup so it will block them unless I open them up.

    Thank you,


    • #194 by James R on 2011.07.24 - 12:09 am

      You should obviously know how to figure which programs are using which ports?

      Freeware? CurrPorts bud.

    • #202 by HighFlier on 2011.07.22 - 6:41 pm

      Don’t be in to big a hurry for your blue hair. Some things require enduring a lot of patience including blue hair. You might need to have an on duty There God migrate it first. Beware that you can’t know people by their tag colors yet. if your defensive about other name tag colors you might not be a good GP candidate. So far it seems that reds are in control of things but not the original reds.

      • #203 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.23 - 5:38 pm

        Lucky you Flier!!
        Be thankful that, at least you can see a name tag, let alone the color.

    MW I’m curious, I plan to meddle with designing this time around and wonder if it’s possible to download the templates and programs needed to do the designs now so I can practice while waiting or will I have to wait for the world to open to do so?

    • #214 by Jordan on 2011.07.22 - 10:15 am

      Stylemaker has all the templates pre-built into them. When you get it go to Item>Object here>texture>save as and save it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • #215 by Percepti0n on 2011.07.22 - 7:31 pm

    MW, is it going to be a straight paying $10 fee per month, or we will have a little trial to see what passed accounts we want to start up.

    • #218 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.22 - 10:12 am

      $10 month in world.

        Is this the official announcement of the cost or did you mean to say “at least $10.00” as you clarified in an earlier post that same day?

    • #223 by HighFlier on 2011.07.22 - 6:30 pm

      Now what did you do to get that answer? ‘hmmm your lucky trevor. That’s been asked a zillion times a zillion ways and just out of the blues there’s our answer. You get Gold Star of the Day..of the Week or should I say of the Month.

      • #238 by Charles Davis on 2011.07.22 - 5:03 pm

        Yes MW stated in a earlier post that The charge would be around $10.

      I’ll be posting some GP screenshots on my blog in a bit, with permission from MW/There of course… I took so many, there’s no reason to post them all here; they’ve all been sent in/reported to There already so I assume it’d be ok to post. ๐Ÿ™‚ I had some trouble with the Change Me in ThereIM. It kept saying I was wearing/stacking several items (like nerdy glasses and rose glasses) even though my avie showed only 1 of ’em. Not sure if I was the only one with that prob.

    • #268 by jordancharters on 2011.07.22 - 6:19 am

      Worst thing you could have said in Michaels opinion. Read one of his earlier blogs, it says, asking to be invited or first will only put you further away from being selected. Which is fair enough, I like to post on the blog too and would love to test but myself and many others just let Michael do what he does best.

      Dude, if you’ve been keeping up, you would know that Michael said that anyone that asks to be invited to test out There would most likely be last to be let in There.

      • #271 by Lady Tigrane on 2011.07.23 - 10:52 am

        Don’t invite me this week… I’ve got family in from Boston and with this heat wave things are just a teeny bit stressful and dysfunctional.

I for one and I know a few other’s are getting fb messages demanding answer’s or requesting somehow we get them in the ThereIm. I haven’t received a invite myself and I have nothing to do with the invites, LOL! My typical reply now is my name is NOT Michael and last I checked I’m female! I’m looking forward to There opening like the next, even impatient but theres no way I’d pursue members or even call! haha Cool your britches people… There will open. As for the mean message I got for not answering your question’s…..I’m dreaming of a hood with no forcefield on and you accepting my summons! rofl!

  148. #284 by HighFlier on 2011.07.22 - 12:23 am

    Yesterday a few things happen for the very first time on my PC. First I noticed these odd red numbers on my task bar tray flashing around 5:22 PM where my temp usually sits and is always and has always been blue numbers for like over 10 years now. So I’m like what in the heck…and I look closer and notice it’s now a bright burning orange red and flashing as if to really get my attention and I notice it says 101. Ouch! oooh whata scorcher. Well as it turns out this red color happens only when it reaches 100 degrees. Like 1 minute later I hear the local tornado siren goes off too to warn the public. Lol as if you couldn’t already feel it. The sirens were warning for excessive heat warning according to the TV news.

    So the city is saying this is an emergency basically. The stores were even turning off gas pumps duing the afternoon. Stop laughing you Texans because yours is a dry heat and nothing compared to this humid heat wave version. This heat wave is scary and now when I see on TV all these horrible forest fires you all get out west I can see how they get started so easily. 1 little spark could set off the grass or a dead tree anything. Cooking out on a grill is dangerous actually with this kind of heat wave and my neighbors were doing it. OMG are they crazy! You could fry eggs & ham right on my door mat. Yes you can sure feel it when you step outside you think the earth has no air left for you to breath and you think you might suffocate. So here is a pic for proof.

    8) http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t283/HighFlier_Photos/temp101.jpg

    Next I’m cooling off inside finally with air conditioning AND a fan going while drinking an ice cold Coke Zero when I notice some emails from There and I read them and realize, OMG, there must be a GP invite in the spam folder from the There Gods. OMG, and sure enough what do ya know, There it was in all it’s fantastic glory staring right back at me in the face “THE INVITE OF THE YEAR”. So It’s official “IMA” “GP”. heehee Here’s the proof.

    It says I have 550t so I guess with the 100 gained I must have had only 450t ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but it’s a start. It was so cool to see anything with There open and functioning again. Seeing my avie again well, it’s a feeling I hope you all get to experience very soon too. It’s like seeing a long lost friend. I wanted to hug him and pat him on the back, shake his hand and make him go ‘heyhey ‘tu for good ole times and for making it though all this time all alone in that dark server room. ‘sad ‘happy lol poor little guy. Anyway I got a ton of videos for you all on youtubeville.

    ๐Ÿ˜ฎ O’ did I hear someone yelling really loudly at me >>>> “DUDA BACH IS OPENNN!!!”

    Ahhhh…darn not yet! Dang just a false alarm. Gurr I wanted to get in my bathing suit & flip flops then walk around on the beach with blue hair and lounge someplace with cocktails or just huddle with other totally mindless avatars and do crazy silly dances all night long. The way I see it is If the flamingos can all get along and all migrate together so can we.

    To pass some time:

      I’m glad for you..I checked my spam on all my email accounts and found nothing ๐Ÿ˜ฆ . I know there is no favoritism on the GP invites because if there was I’d get mine already, Afterall MW is on my friend’s list ( I met him at an Event in CC Metro, had no idea who he was, thought he was a There Employee lol). Anywho..My wait continues. Good Luck and thanks for posting shots.

    • #292 by deleight on 2011.07.22 - 2:55 pm

      Hey… grats on becoming a GP! I remember doing the beta tests in There… I’m betting being able to get into ThereIM is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you There team for another great update.

    Thanks for the update Michael ๐Ÿ™‚

  152. #297 by Cyndi Yonkers on 2011.07.21 - 10:30 pm

    It’s all good!! Wishing everyone would read the blog so we don’t keep hearing the same question “When will There open”? It will open when it opens…….

  153. #298 by dakotaman on 2011.07.21 - 10:25 pm

    I must say that I find the updates not only informative, but quite amusing. Thanks for making the waiting process more ‘bearable’ by keeping us ‘in the loop’. And thank everyone for the hard work they are putting in.

    I’m not getting any emails from There.com. I think I discontinued the one I signed up with originally and not sure if I remember my There password. I still have the There log-in on my computer There (v14136) (DX8) that has the encrypted password still stored. I’m just trying to figure out a way that I can get my main toon back. I can submit screen shots if that will help. One more problem happened to me the last night There was opened. I tried to get a friend unblocked that was on my ignore list and when I did it started deleting all my 600 or whatever the max friends were you could have. I think when I went to IM after it closed I only had like 100 or so friends. Lake777

    • #300 by deleight on 2011.07.22 - 9:23 am

      My email address I used for There is no longer functional… I lost my domain 2 months after There closed. I think there are other ways to verify your identity to reclaim your old identity.. security questions being a biggy ๐Ÿ™‚

  155. #301 by turret001 on 2011.07.21 - 10:11 pm

    Better and good, Luckly I’m 17, and turning into 18 in a week. GJ MW and team.

  156. #302 by Indy_Lou on 2011.07.21 - 10:09 pm

    I’m so looking forward to us all reaching that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

    • #303 by Simone on 2011.07.22 - 7:33 pm

      looking good can’t wait to see the end result

  157. #304 by Kelayna Hilton on 2011.07.21 - 10:05 pm

    Thank you for the update. Am sure there.com is going to more like what old school disneyworld would call an “E Ticket”.. Huge exciting ride, exclusive and well worth the wait.

  158. #305 by IMAKOS on 2011.07.21 - 10:02 pm

    On the subject of waiting…

    Anyone else wish they were Darth Vader?

    • #318 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.21 - 9:48 pm

      In the spirit of Bono’s answer to the question “…how do you feel after trying to be the best band of all time for the last 20 years?”…

      “What do you mean, wish?”

      • #319 by Kendra (LilGrayFuzz) on 2011.07.22 - 10:01 pm

    Love this update. Continuing to make substantial progress. Also, MW I recently updated my computer to Mac OS X Lion. Will it work with the Mac version of ThereIM and client? Or will I need to go back to Snow Leopard when it is released?

  166. #325 by Kayleigh Lace on 2011.07.21 - 9:12 pm

    I’m digging the pink forcefield!

    (Am I really first? Here here for late night postings ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

        You know you kind of gave away the fact that you’re under 18 by not knowing what the word “moderation” means :s

    • #338 by KellyB on 2011.07.25 - 12:24 pm
